Galway's CastleHacket House Friar Room

Holiday home in Tuam
CastleHacket House, steeped in Irish History. Built in 1703 by John Kirwan Mayor of Galway, the house is surrounded by nature and is very quiet and peaceful. Join in one of our "quiet "Yoga Classes, hike Connemara, stroll Knockma Woods, explore the lakes - world Famous for brown Trout fishing, or simply relax in the beautiful Park and Gardens.

Looking out and towards Knockma Hill, the Friar's Room recalls the name of a famous horse owned by the Kirwan Family. He was the talk of the racing community in Galway. In a gallant and magnificent effort he won a particularly historic race. For John and Mary Kirwan, this was a race that literally saved the family from ruin and launched the Kirwan name to rest evenly and fairly in Galway history.

With the aspect of Knockma watching serenely, the ensuite room with its sleigh bed and furnishings invites you to relax within the Hidden History of Rural Ireland. Enjoy the shared sound of silence and the reminders of where our own histories dwell.
Guest accommodations at this holiday home feature separate bedrooms.
